Good, thanks for letting these people speak for themselves, it was a nice way to see some of the bright ideas floating around this conference.
Keep'em coming.

By the way, Al Jazeera and the Real News do a better job of covering the news than any of the featured interviewees - who don't talk about the basic issue in news coverage: money. Money to buy reporters plane tickets. Money to run web sites, money to pay bills. money to pay salaries - and where is the money coming from? That's the problem - and the "non-profit" corporate press is really not too different from the corporate press in that regard. Even the focus on FOX is disingenuous - FOX is bad, but CNN and NPR are equally bad. All were (and are) diehard war supporters. Don't get fooled - look at the news product, not the plumage. Fluff Post isn't so different from the Dunce Report, after all.
